DreamCloud and WinkBeds are both online sellers of thick hybrid mattresses. WinkBeds offers more construction and firmness options than DreamCloud, but these two brands also have some similarities. This post will compare the two so you can decide which is a better option for your needs.
- Both are thick mattresses at 15″.
- Both are hybrid mattresses that combine coil with foam construction.
- Both are very supportive.
- Both are responsive.
- Both are good options for people who weigh more.
- Both have a pillow-top feel.
- Both offer free shipping.
- WinkBeds mattresses are less expensive ($749 to $1,749 for WinkBeds; about $1,000 to $1,700 for DreamCloud).
- WinkBeds has two layers of coils.
- WinkBeds offers an optional proprietary mattress base that lets you control the mattress’s temperature.
- DreamCloud has a more complex construction.
- DreamCloud is more of a luxury option.
- DreamCloud offers a longer trial at 365 nights, compared to 101 nights for WinkBeds.
- DreamCloud’s construction is relatively complex.
- This mattress has a True Tufted™ Cashmere Top that features hand-sewn tufts, giving it a Eurotop feel.
- The first layer is 0.39″ (1 cm) of gel-infused memory foam.
- Next are two layers of quilted memory foam, totaling 1.77″ (4.5 cm).
- A thin layer of natural latex (0.39″ or 1 cm) gives DreamCloud some bounce.
- More memory foam, this time approximately 2″ (5 cm) of “Dreamplush” supporting memory foam, comes toward the middle.
- Then a thin layer (0.59″ or 1.5 cm) of super dense, super soft memory foam comes next.
- A thick (nearly 8″, or 20 cm) coil layer makes DreamCloud extra supportive. Individually pocketed “BestRest” coils in two levels of resistance are positioned in five comfort zones to ensure the right kind of support for the right part of your body.
- The base is 1.6″ (5 cm) of high-density, super soft memory foam.
- Winkbeds’ construction varies a bit depending on the level of firmness, but here is a basic breakdown.
- The cover is made of TENCEL, a fiber from the eucalyptus plant. This material has natural cooling and moisture-wicking properties, making it a good fabric for sleeping cool.
- The top layer is 2″ of foam and has an almost pillow-top feel. This section incorporates a gel layer to help ensure cool sleeping.
- A 2.5″ layer of foam-encased coils comes next. This layer has more than 1,000 coils, making support more granular. This coil count is similar to many $3,000-plus mattresses that you’ll find in stores.
- Next is a thicker (8.5″) layer of coils. The thickness of this coil layer makes it extra supportive, making this mattress a good option for heavier folks. WinkBeds also offers a “plus” version specially constructed for heavier sleepers.
- Both combine foam and springs.
- WinkBeds uses two layers of coils.
- Both are durable because they use coils.
- DreamCloud has a more complex construction.
- DreamCloud has a Eurotop-like pillow-top, though WinkBeds also has a pillow-top feel.
- DreamCloud is just a bit firmer and bouncier.
- WinkBeds has more of a sinking feeling.
- WinkBeds has a dedicated option for heavier people.
Both mattresses are relatively firm, but DreamCloud is a little firmer and its hand-tufted pillow-top gives it a different feel. The videos below give a sense of the mattresses’ differences. The WinkBeds video depicts its medium firm option.
Motion Transfer Differences
WinkBeds is a little softer and absorbs motion better, but both options do a respectable job at preventing motion transfer.
Pick DreamCloud If …
- You want more bounce. DreamCloud is springier and more responsive.
- You sleep on your stomach or back. DreamCloud is a little firmer than WinkBeds and is more likely to provide better support for back and stomach sleepers.
Pick WinkBeds If …
- You sleep on your side. WinkBeds has softer options than DreamCloud and generally has more of a sinking feeling.
- You want options. WinkBeds lets you pick among different levels of firmness. It also has an option for heavier people.
- You are on the heavier side. While both mattresses are extra thick and supportive, WinkBeds offers a model specially made for people who weigh more.
These brands share some unique features, but their differences will likely make them appeal to different customers. Hopefully this post helped you decide which would work better for you. Please leave any questions about DreamCloud or WinkBeds in the comments.
